    Hi

    newb

    have some b/w here (35mm)

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/33549384@N05/

    am also into Medium Format (Kiev 60 and various pre-1970's cameras) with a hope to progress one day into even larger formats w/ alternative print techniques

    [ use digital, but more as a reference tool than anything else - for which i find it very useful ... but 'corrupted file' syndrome is a forever nightmare :-o ]

    also into 8mm ciné film and develop this increasingly on my own / also due to rocketing costs :sad: ~ and also it's more fun! :smile:

    :wink:

    thanks

    Ric

    Hi there Ric,
    you are in just the right place to share the enjoyment of your tools and for your further explorations!
    Is there a way to show us your movies?

    Where are you from btw?

    thanks Chaz

    great to find a photo analog/ue site! i have been darkrooming since the early 1980's, just can't get that buzz from digital although it is a useful tool: there is a magic about chemicals and safe lights :wink:

    hi Jeff - thanks - yes, there's nothing quite like it, and 'happy accidents' ~ much harder to get one of those in the wonderful world of digital software :wink:
